What If You Need Cloud Native That Just Works?

*For an update on Dell EMC VxRack with Neutrino, please visit this blog.

Today we are announcing VCE® VxRack™ System 1000 with Neutrino Nodes, an innovative, turnkey system that provides cloud native Infrastructure-as-a-Service. VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes is the first product of its kind from EMC, designed for enterprises, ISV’s and Service Providers looking to embrace the promise of digital transformation by shifting from developing traditional (or “second platform”) applications to cloud native (”third platform”) applications.

Companies like Uber have become poster children of digital transformation Infographic-Final-page-001through their use of technology to deliver a great customer experience. However, this embrace of technology to improve decision-making and to provide better services and products to customers is extending well beyond flashy startups. The speed of innovation that is possible with cloud native capabilities has put IT organizations under enormous pressure. Faced with the challenge of being more responsive to business demands, IT is looking for ways to modernize their technology, processes, skills and roles. Cloud-native applications are the driver behind this need to transform.

The technology requirements of cloud native applications are quite different from those of traditional applications. Organizations who want to maintain control of their data with an on-premises infrastructure for cloud-native applications are faced with a choice of a DIY/Build-Your-Own model or buying a “ready-to-go” infrastructure. The DIY model for cloud native infrastructure poses some substantial challenges. Most organizations don’t have experienced staff that can architect, deploy and maintain the infrastructure that development teams need for cloud native applications, such as OpenStack, the VMware Photon Platform or Apache Hadoop. Without this expertise, offering better services and products to their customers or outpacing their competition has to wait. If siloed roles are still the norm in the organization, using OpenStack deployment as an example, it could take a large number of personnel to maintain both the physical infrastructure and the evolving cloud native software environment, which could translate into steep costs.

Introducing VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes

VxRack with Neutrino Nodes was architected with cloud native in mind: pairing the benefits of hyper-converged, rack-scale engineered systems with purpose-built management, provisioning and reporting software. With enterprises, ISV’s and service providers in mind, VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes was developed to be a key to success for DevOps teams worldwide.

Check out the video below to learn more about how VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes simplifies the development of cloud native applications.

Organizations using VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes will be able to deploy an enterprise-grade OpenStack environment in days versus weeks or months, knowing their infrastructure is enterprise ready with a fully engineered and tested complete stack solution. They will be able to easily maintain the infrastructure, because adding/removing/updating nodes can be accomplished with minimal disruption in just a few mouse clicks. Monitoring the infrastructure is made easy with dashboard visibility into both infrastructure and services, and out-of-the-box reports. VxRack System with Neutrino Nodes enables organizations to add new services and new development platforms on the same hardware to keep CapEx under control.
